”You can take it with you,” Facebook says. ”We are your passport to the past, your home away from home, the country where you will always be welcome.”

”What’s the catch?” we ask.

”And it’s free,” they say.

”What’s the catch?”

Sometimes a voice whispers in my ear that we can carry it with us everywhere because it amounts to nothing. But what do disembodied voices know?

Quit? Never!

Why bother running? You’ll never make it past the border
